The last two Fridays I had the pleasure of working at Suffolk New College with the Level 1 and 2 Performing Art’s students.
Since Big Dance over the summer, the Kathak style fused with Contemporary style has been a huge influence with the various educational workshops I’ve lead. I’ve had some great feedback from different sessions and students, telling me they loved learning a new style of dance, and really enjoyed embracing the Kathak flavour.
The workshops were filled with fun warm-up games, learning some new Kathak and Contemporary technique, teaching some repetoire and creating some of their own Kathak fused pieces.
The students were full of personality, depth, creativity and passion. The choreography created and shown at the end of the second workshop was really inspiring and makes me realise why I love working with young people.
Karen Louise Dance has new ventures ready to happen, hopefully with SNC, and some other talented young people throughout Suffolk. Keep here for some big developments!
If you can’t wait, I’ll give you a hint… starts with Youth and ends in dance company. Super excited! Watch this space.
